Stayed in the dorm hut late winter 2017. Great location, tasty food, friendly staff, clean room, pool, this place got everything. Really great vibe overall. Wish they would bring back the cheaper dorm room option cuz it was great! by far the best place i've stayed the two times ive been to costa rica.
Thank Beijing_Realist

Hi Thank you for your review! We are so stoked you enjoyed the dorm rooms. We have made some changes to the property and its cool and different. We have a natural food cafe. We have a community center with tons of lounge space for our clients. The vibe is still great. We also have many daily yoga classes as well as a new hotel across the street.

We loved our stay at Kaya Sol!! We rented Casa Concha and a few of the smaller rooms for a girls surf trip with 7 ladies. Casa Concha was perfect with a kitchen and two bedrooms for the large group. We had a blast surfing every morning & evening and riding bikes around all day. The location is awesome, with a nice path straight to the ocean and some great restaurants nearby. It was nice to be off of the main street and be able to bike everywhere, Kaya Sol rents bikes with splash guards (a must in the muddy season). The waves are a bit heavier on this side of Playa Guiones but still super fun and if you want a mellower session the other side is a nice bike ride or quick drive away. Sophie & Susy at the front desk were super helpful and always had a smile on their face. We are missing it already!! Highly recommended.
Thank Jennifer G

I loved the friendly staff, Sofi, Susie and of course, Nacho. They really make the difference, offer suggestions, and really help out. The howler monkeys were exceptional part of the experience! The surfing was challenging, but the return to the waterfall pool, outdoor showers, or hot water indoor shower was always a reward.

Kaya Sol is an amazing place! I was so impressed with the staff and the overall atmosphere. Suzy and Sophia re extremely helpful. Nosara is an absolutely beautiful beach - me and two friends went in late Oct/early November. We surfed everyday and rented boards right around the corner at Juan Surfos (Juan is awesome) and went out for a few parties at night. If you’re looking for a fun, relaxing surf vacation, Kaya Sol is an amazing spot. The private walkway to the beach is so cool, walking through what feels like a jungle with your boards right to a perfect beach.

Overall amazing place.
Thank Graham G

I stayed at Kaya Sol for nearly 3 weeks and it will be the only place I will stay on future trips to Nosara.

My room was spacious, with a comfortable king size bed, refrigerator, AC and hot shower. The pool is beautiful and refreshing. Ask about the quick jungle path to the beach.

I am a stickler about customer service and quick to call out businesses that fail in this area. Kaya Sol nailed it! Every single person that works there is so nice! From the grounds keeper to the room cleaners, the owners Ryan and his wife are super sweet and Susy at the desk is an absolute ANGEL!

I highly recommend you the fresh juices at Naked Foods next door! A little pricey, but fresh and delicious!!!
Thank ChefRonTravels
